Stanford Seed Transformation Program 2016 – East Africa

Application Deadline: 31st October 2016

Stanford Seed, a Stanford Graduate School of Business-led initiative committed to enabling business owners to lead their regions to greater prosperity, launches in Kenya

Building on the success of its program in West Africa, Stanford Seed, the Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies, has announced the launch of the Seed Transformation Program in East Africa.

In May, the first group of promising business leaders selected by Stanford Seed will gather in Nairobi to begin a 12-month transformational process led by world-renowned faculty from Stanford Graduate School of Business.

Aimed at driving sustainable growth in the East African regional economy through private-sector-led development, Seed will train these established entrepreneurs from Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, and Ethiopia, in a yearlong, interactive, educational journey based out of Seed’s new regional center in Nairobi, Kenya.

Throughout the yearlong experience, you will work in small peer groups called Leadership Labs to share experiences, resources, ideas, and support. A select group of participants will be invited to apply to receive high-touch coaching following the on-site sessions.
